When the theme of "Vintage" was announced for this week's Photo Art Friday gallery my mind flew off in several directions at once. Should I use photos from the 50's and 60's where vintage items would naturally be involved or should I use textures to create a vintage feel.
My first pieces are vintage Olsen kids (me and my sibs) . . .

The middle child, Dallas Birk, perched on the back of a truly vintage automobile - 1942 Buick.
Next we have the rest of us. My older sister Kari Jane is holding Martha Lorraine and I am holding her twin brother, Mark Leroy. This has always been a favourite family photo.

Later in the week some lighthouse shots I had taken came to mind and I thought they would be perfect to play with some vintage textures. I really love how the first one turned out . . .

1 layer pdpa "Vintage Vellum" at Burn 77 %
I am not so sure about this one, but I enjoyed the process of trying different ideas and just being willing to not follow a formula or be too concerned about "getting it right". It's art, right? For me it kind of looks like something found in an old scrapbook where the writing from one page has transferred over to the photo from years of being stuck together.

I am looking forward to next week's assignment and seeing what is hanging in the gallery at Bonnie's.
